You can recycle post office shipping boxes to make "scabbards or "holsters" for your carving tools...Glue them together to fit individual tools and wrap with duct tape...I like that idea better than using cork.....I also make them for my files and rasps.

Well I do have several 8"x8"x1" foam like that.  I might have thought about that but it is out of sight.  Laugh Laugh

Arlin,

I bartend about four nights a week (it’s my fun job). We mainly sell beer but do some wine as well. I’ve started setting aside corks for you. As more accumulate I’ll reach out via pm to get and address to send them out.
